WHAT TO EAT? KEEPING COOL
Well the hot days of summer are back! Yesterday it hit a record high of 37.4C (98F approx)
in the city. The extreme heat is not pleasant for most of us, though some people don’t seem to mind it. So yesterday I thought no way am I cooking anything! ITS to HOT!
One thing one needs in such extreme heat is cool drinks , cool foods and a lot of ice!
Here are some of my favourites for the those hot sweltering summer days.
Let me know what you think or what is your favourite dish for the hot days.
FOODS to COOL YOU
So first off I made fresh lemonade. The favourite drink for summer, or another choice is fruit punch made with sparkling water . So a tall glass of lemonade please.
- 1-3/4 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice, from 8-12 lemons, strained
- 1/2 pound (8 oz.) raspberries, plus more for serving
- 5 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- Lemon wedges, for serving
- Fresh mint, for serving
- Combine the raspberries and ½ cup of the lemon juice in a blender; purée until smooth, then pass the mixture through a fine sieve into a large bowl to strain out the seeds (the fastest way to force it through is by pressing a ladle against the strainer in a circular motion). Add the remaining lemon juice, water, and sugar to the bowl and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Taste, then and add more sugar, lemon juice or water if necessary (keep in mind that ice cubes will water it down). Pour into glasses with ice cubes and garnish with lemon wedges, raspberries and fresh mint, if desired. The lemonade will keep in the fridge for a few days.
